White Ribbon Day

Today, 25th November 2013, is White Ribbon Day. A global event highlighting and trying to prevent domestic violence against women committed by men.

Sadly, domestic violence is all too common, and often times goes unnoticed by the family and friends of the abused. White Ribbon Day is about taking a stand, and becoming more aware of the horror that so many people face each day. My friend, and domestic violence survivor, shares her story here.
